Summer Term 2021 - What have the Romans ever do for us?

This term, the Year 4 children will be piecing together a timeline of when and why the Romans invaded Britain, how far the Roman Empire spread and discover why the Roman army was so successful.  They will be investigating the Roman way of life in Britain and contrast what life was like before and after the Romans settled here.

Trip to Oxenwood

On 21st April, Year 4 pupils travelled to Oxenwood Outdoor Education Centre, near Marlborough, to take part in a Roman Day to kickstart their new topic.  The children were invited to dress up as a Roman to enhance their experience; the children particularly enjoyed staging the battles!

For more photos, please take a look on the Y4 Roman Day feature in the Gallery on the 'Our News' tab above.

Spring Term 2021

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the children returned to school on 8th March 2021 for the last 4 weeks of term.  In literacy the Year 4 children had an experience day which included pretending they were soaking wet, dried off and then warmed up with hot chocolate (the last part was real!).  They also followed instructions from a book, Float, written by Daniel Miyares, to make a paper boat and then experimented with floating them on water. The children also walked to Hungerford Common to look for and sketch signs of Spring.

Autumn Term 2020 - Were the Vikings really vicious?

Year 4 children are going back in time to find out what Britain looked like in the Viking Age. They will learn about historic events such as the Battle of Lindisfarne and where and how Britain was invaded by various Viking tribes.  The children enjoyed a visit from 'Edgar the Dane' who had travelled in his time machine to show them how to become true Viking warriors and taught us about their way of life.
